“The MOST AMAZING Wedding Day that any couple could ask for!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

It Is with Great pride that my new husband and I would like to thank John Kelly and his staff at the Garfield House Hotel for the most magical wedding that anyone could have asked for just 3 months before our big day our original venue changed key aspect of our wedding to which we decided were unacceptable and could no longer trust them to get the remainder of the day just as envisaged and cancelled it. It was a mad dash to find a new venue my husband new about the Garfield but due to how popular it was didn't think it would be possible to get it on the date we were looking for but gave a call to the Garfield anyway as predicted the 18th of May was booked but just by luck the 17th of May had just become available we went for a visit and meet John Kelly who showed us around this was the place we should have booked in the first place were everything is possible and nothing is to much trouble so we booked for the17th instead and from that day to the day after has been with out a hitch every detail was perfect and apart from me being 25 minutes late (a Brides prerogative) our wedding day could not have been more perfect for which I cant thank John Kelly and his team enough our day was much more than we could have ever imagined and since we have came home from our honeymoon we have had nothing but compliments about what a fabulous day it was an what a fantastic venue the Garfield is. I would recommend the Garfield hotel to anyone looking to get married have a stay-over or even a meal of which we have had many and I am sure there will be many more and in the future any big event the Garfield will be our First choice.

Many Thanks again John Kelly and his team you are truly gifted at what you do

Room Tip: Room 48 the Honeymoon suite s truly spectacular

We've just had our wedding in the Garfield on 20th April 2013. Well where do we begin! What an amazing day! Our journey started 18 months before when we stayed overnight as a surprise for my birthday this is were we got engaged. Everything about this hotel is amazing the food, the decor, the rooms and the staff are by far what makes the hotel and gives it that special edge that bricks and mortar don't provide. We did think about getting married elsewhere but to be honest nowhere else we looked at even compared to this hotel or to the staff. On the run up to our wedding we had a few stays lunch and dinner. Not once have we been disappointed we have literally fallen in love with this hotel. We had an initial appointment with John Kelly the wedding organiser to have a tour n take through options for our day. From that first visit we knew he was the coordinator for us. We were married in the hotel with an intimate ceremony in the drawing room. Nothing we suggested or asked for was ever too much and John was only too happy to accommodate. We had several visits just to check this and that many phone calls with me asking yet another question. Nothing was ever a bother I never felt like I was a pest (even though I prob was). Everything we asked the hotel to do for us or set up for us candy bar, ceremony room, reception room etc were all done to perfection. John's interaction with our families and the rapport he made with us goes above and beyond a job description, even having a chat with us throughout the day to make sure we were having a great time. Everything was effortless. Our kids were also made to feel special and thought John was fantastic. This is what this hotel can offer simply perfection. Our meal was gorgeous and staff working on the so lovely. Our night reception room was stunning our colour scheme matched the decor of the hotel so well everything sparkled and twinkled all night (I do love some sparkle). All our guest commented on what an amazing day and night they had and that it was the best wedding they'd been to in along time. We could do it all over again and many have asked us to just because it was so fabulous. We honestly can't thank everyone enough, especially John who steadied our nerves understood our vision and ensured every detail of our day was special to us. This hotel will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will be back to visit many times in the years to come. thank you all xxxx

I stayed here on a recent business trip, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The place is very modern and the rooms are spacious, well maintained and very clean. The restaurant staff both in the evening and at breakfast were very polite and friendly.

Room Tip: Room 3 was very good, it was quite and very large.

Recently held a function here and it was excellent. The staff were brilliant and were so helpful and friendly. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for great service, food and value for money. Thanks to all the staff who made our night truly special.

I am a photographer and was there to photograph a wedding - the staff were more than helpful and bent over backwards to help you - the master of ceremony's helped us along the way.

We also stayed for dinner in the bar/grill - the food was fantastic and again the staff were great too.

We cant wait till we are back here to photograph another wedding - well done guy - great job !

Well where do you start with this hotel, I know this is about hotels on how you compare them with other hotels. This one you CANNOT compare to any other hotel because this one is unique, my review is mainly based on organising a wedding at this hotel, but over the year of doing so we would meet at the hotel check out the layout of where everything was and how it would pan out, we would have lunch or dinner at this hotel, and over the months of doing so, there was no instance of, well that was ok, or not too good today, every time you were there it was just such a good and comfortable place to be, chilled out and we are here for you comes to mind as I remember the days leading up to the big day , and would everything be ok on the day. When it comes to finding a suitable place for your daughters big day, it can be daunting, We stay in Uddingston, and we had a lot of venues we could pick from, and believe me they are all very well equipped to fulfil your wedding needs, and more so, but this hotel had something, it made you feel this is your day, and there will be no hiccups. There is a Gentleman called john Kelly who organises the weddings, that is an understatement, he simply makes sure the wedding goes as he said it would. our wedding was a day to be remembered, it was fantastic. the wedding was awesome everybody enjoyed themselves. From organising how many guests there would be to what you are having for food and drinks to evening guests requirements was dealt with in such a personal touch it was to be commended, and there lies this hotels special touch. This Hotel has Wedding packages to suit your needs and requirements, it does not include photographers, wedding cars ,or any other extras on to your wedding, you do that....., and they do what they are so so so brilliant at, giving your Daughter and New Son in Law the most perfect wedding ever. John Kelly was there all night, making sure everything went smooth, without a hitch, this is such a personal touch that you have to admire. I could talk about John Kelly all night telling you what he did and how he guided you on what to do and not do. Then you have the most wonderful lovely people taking care of you throughout the hotel, from the receptionist at the foyer to the bar staff looking after everybody was great. Last two things, 1. This Hotel looks after you so well, 2. everybody at the wedding wants to go back this Friday and do it again, it was so good, still on a high a week later,,,,, WELL DONE GARFIELD HOTEL, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WELL DONE THE STAFF, MARY BOB WHAT EVER YOUR NAME, YOU DID US PROUD, AND I THANK YOU FOR THAT. XXXXXXXXXXXX, DONT NORMALLY PUT KISSES HERE BUT YOU DESEVE IT GUYS. X

We were at Natalie and Leigh's wedding on the 5th April and we had 3 rooms for 2 nights (go for room 3 if you can get it). We were made really welcome by John (the best host in the business) and his team. On the day of the wedding nothing was too much trouble and the venue the food and the staff were fab all of which contributed to a really great day.

Ive been going to the Garfield for 25 years on and off and it is now the best it has ever been.
